About Earl Grey Tea

Tea Type : Black Tea

Tea Forté Earl Grey is an exceptional blend of stunningly superb Organic Assam tea leaves infused with cold-pressed Italian Bergamot oil from the citrus fruit grown in Calabria, Italy. Considered to be one of the most popular teas in the West, and likely the most popular flavored tea in the world, we’ve made this an even greater grey with a sprinkling of organic cornflowers to create a rich, full-bodied cup for those who enjoy their tea with milk for the perfect classic.

The natural citrus oil is pressed from the peel of the Bergamot citrus fruit and gives Earl Grey its distinctive taste and aroma. Bergamot is a small citrus fruit with a protruding nub like a navel orange. Earl Grey tea is flavored with oil made from bergamot peel, and has a distinctive taste loved by many. Earl Grey tea is named after Charles Grey, the 2nd Earl Grey and Prime Minister of England from 1830-1834. Legend has it that he received bergamot flavored tea as a gift after one of his men had rescued the son of a Chinese mandarin from drowning.

Earl Grey is a classic English tea time treat. Traditionally it is served with twist of lemon or a bit of sugar. However, it can also be taken with a touch of milk and honey (just remember, milk and lemon together will curdle!). Earl Grey is equally well suited for breakfast, lunch or dinner, or anytime that a warming cup would satisfy.

      Black tea

      I love my Forte tea! Every morning! Even carry it with me on trips. The English b-fast is very good. The Amber sugar is the best. In a tea Forest cup with infuser makes the perfect mug!

      The Best Earl Around

      So, so good!! Tea Forté has made such a beautiful blend of earl grey. Many have tried and failed and tea Forté has nailed it. The flavors are distinguished yet perfectly blended and the tea itself is so beautiful. The earl grey is in our constant rotation, we add a little milk and enjoy our tea in latte form. Highly recommend!

      Best earl grey

      I have been going through a pound of TF earl grey each month. I think it the best earl grey I have ever tried. And being at a lover I have tried a lot. Perfect blend of flavor, smell and tastes, keeps fresh for a long time if needed

      Wonderful black tea

      The addition of bergamot to this already flavorful black tea makes it a winner in my opinion. I never tire of it and have had many people comment on how wonderful it smells while i’m steeping it. The description is correct, it is robust!

      Earl Grey is the best!

      I have been a consumer of Tea Forte's Earl Grey tea for many years! I lost my taste for coffee several years ago and switched to black tea, and then earl grey. I tried many different brands and knew I found my perfect match with Tea Forte. I look forward to that first cup every morning! I can't say enough good things about this tea. I heartily recommend it!
